VALHALLA, New York, Sep. 22, 2020 – Utopus Insights announced the appointment of Magne Borgund as Chief Growth Officer.
We’re pleased to announce the appointment of Magne Borgund as Chief Growth Officer at Utopus Insights. Borgund, in his previous role as Interim Head of Growth, has brought about tremendous change in shaping the Growth team for success, and forging a strong business strategy with Vestas, our parent company. He will continue to report to Chandu Visweswariah, Founding President and Chief Executive Officer.
“I am delighted by our Board of Directors’ decision, and I couldn’t imagine a better person to lead our sales and business development. Magne’s rich industry experience, combined with an open, collaborative approach to expanding on business opportunities, will help us remain a leading force in the digital analytics space for years to come,” Visweswariah said.
Borgund described being promoted to CGO for Utopus Insights as “a true honor.”
“The Growth team is made up of talented colleagues with broad experience in the renewable space, as well as deep software know-how. Product development within Utopus, supported by strong collaboration with our parent company, Vestas, has enabled us to take a giant leap in terms of standing out as a provider of innovative solutions for the renewable industry,” Borgund said.
“With the renewable industry growing by 150-200+ GW per year, subsidies phased out or removed entirely across the globe, developers and owners of renewable assets are embracing technology to make use of innovative software to reduce LCOE and future-proof their business for maximum return on investments. I am proud to be part of a company that contributes to accelerating the renewable transition globally with the power of digital transformation,” he added.
Borgund joined Utopus Insights in 2019, as Vice President, Sales, in the EurAf (Europe & Africa) region.
